Are you crazy about the department you work in? Do you get to work on a wide range of exciting projects? Are you offered ample opportunities to train up in the hottest skills and climb the corporate ladder? If the answer to all these questions is "yes", we want to hear from you.



This year, Computer Weekly launches Best Places to Work in IT 2003. Our aim is to showcase the UK’s best employers of IT professionals, and highlight employment best practice for other IT departments to follow.

Over the coming months, we will identify 100 companies and public sector bodies, large and small, across 10 industry sector categories, that are shining examples of how to attract, retain, motivate and empower your IT team.

Successful companies can expect to gain an enhanced reputation in the IT recruitment marketplace, and receive substantial publicity and visibility, enabling them to attract more and better-qualified candidates. Success in the survey will also create a feel-good factor among existing employees.

How will the survey work?

To nominate your department, simply fill in our simple registration form. All IT professionals are welcome to register, from junior programmers to board-level department heads.

In early summer, we will contact your department head with an initial questionnaire. Later in the year, we will canvass opinion from employees of short listed IT departments. Finally, our expert panel will choose the UK’s best places to work in IT.

Register now!

Do you work within a trailblazing IT department? If so, we want to give it the recognition it deserves. To register your department, simply click here before the closing date of 23 May.
